More and more operations are being carried out on an outpatient basis. This means that you don’t stay in hospital overnight. With a hernia, kidney stones or meniscus surgery, for example, you’re quickly left to fend for yourself. With the Hospital Day Comfort supplementary insurance plan, you benefit from a private standard of hospital care for outpatient procedures with great value for money.
In contrast to inpatient procedures, an outpatient procedure allows you to leave hospital the same day. This is because more and more operations are so standardised and safe that an overnight stay in hospital is no longer necessary. But also because the government and cantons publish lists of operations that are to be performed as standard as outpatient procedures. Here are a few examples: meniscus surgery, hernias, kidney stones, tonsillectomy.
The ongoing shift towards outpatient services is expected to continue in the future. It is already established practice in countries like the USA, for example. With Hospital Day Comfort, you are well prepared for this transition. This supplementary insurance plan is an add-on for statutory health insurance and ensures you enjoy private coverage for outpatient procedures. Your benefits:
We recommend this supplementary insurance to anyone who values a higher standard of hospital care. For example, free choice of doctors (including senior physician), maximum comfort and personal care before, during and after the outpatient procedure.
Do you already have private or semiprivate hospital insurance?
This covers medical procedures for which you have to stay at least one night in hospital. However, if the procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis, you lose your additional benefits. Hospital Day Comfort closes these gaps in your cover so you can enjoy a private level of hospital care for outpatient procedures, too.
